The BBC to educate the public in journalism
Now everyone can take part of the online journalistic training and resources the BBC has available to its journalists. The BBC blog dot life announces a virtual college of journalism:
“One of the most important things that we need to think about and do is teach journalism to the next generation and to the new leaders within journalism,” said the BBC’s Kevin Marsh, at the DNA 2009 conferenceT in Brussels.
Every aspect of online training that is currently available to 7,500 BBC journalists will be open to the public.
I’ve read a number of posts lately about the education of the public into citizen journalists and educated readers. What do you think, is this the right way to go?
